Least and most valuable certs? Cisco
Interestingly, when asked which certs were the most valuable, Cisco certs were named more than any other. When asked which were the least — Cisco again. How can the same certification track be both least and most valuable? The CCNA, an entry-level prerequisite cert, was the one called out as least valuable, as it is seen as a substitute for hands-on knowledge. Some said the CCNA was valuable in the doors it opened. Yet, the CCIE is still prized in the marketplace as are other difficult, high-level certs like the MCSE. Meanwhile, the CCSP is often required by employers for high-level security positions.
